Sorry to inform you that there is nothing you can do to increase the size of your penis. It is good that you have a lot of healthy habits but that has no contribution to the size of your sexual organ. But here perhaps is huge consolation, when we men look at our penis from above as we can normally do, it always appears as small. The only way we can compare and determine whether it is smaller than most others’ organs are is by measuring it in its placid size and when it is enlarged in sexual excitement. And the other great news for you to know is that size does not matter for sexual gratification, either for you or your partner. In fact when the penis is smaller (I do not mean too small as in tiny!) and the woman is very excited, her cervix attempts to reach the tip of your penis and it is of immense satisfaction to her! If your organ was large she may not be able to do so and will lose on that special gratification. Now the masturbation of twice a day may be connected to this fear of a small penis: masturbation will never increase the size. The other fear is that you will become addicted to masturbation inadvertently and there may be other repercussions to worry about. So masturbate in moderation.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hello, any kind of obsession (whether good or bad) is not good for us as it creates problem not for us but for our near and dear ones as well! you need to consult a psychologist for counselling sessions apart from intake homoeopathic medicines. Both together can give you the best results. Adding meditation and yoga will accentuate this effect. Medication: silicea 200/ twice daily, bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos 6x/ once at night. Take all of them for 1 month. Revert me back there after. Take care.

Dear Karan, Welcome to lybrate. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

You are worrying unnecessarily. Urine color will be determined by the food you eat to a large extent. Yes, it is true that this may also mean concentrated substances that the body finds it necessary to discharge. So it is a good thing. If you find other symptoms of pain while urinating, fever, and any other medical signs, only then do you need to consult a doctor. I however, advise you to drink a lot of water every day to flush out toxins from your body more frequently. Then you will notice clear urine after the first discharge.

Lamotrigine causes weight gain. Garcinia doesn't cause irritability and can be taken with lamotrigine. Garcinia is promoted for weight loss and no scientific study is available.

Lybrate-user. Its really wonderful that you r doing yoga but do not stop it as it will help you in a long run. For a faster improvement, you need to do following things to improve your concentration start tratak. Looking a flame of a candle plsced at 3 feet at your eye level. Start writing your diary of good thoughts and your achievements to reduce your pessimism. Start writing time table of your srkf study and routine which will give you an organised day and improve your confidence. Group duscussion improves your concentration. Brisk walk everyday if still no improvement, you need to consult a psychiatrist. You may be put on antidepressants which will take care of pessimism and improve your confidence and concentration. Take care!

I am 45 year old male. My wife is 35. We have 13 year old son. My wife now refuses to have second child stating that she has health issues and she also fears that what if the second child is not normal. All my efforts to convince her has failed and she goes into dull mood. She says she has cholestoral issues and thyroid problems. Though she is on medication, my physicial never told us not to try. The ldl is 200 for her as per latest test done 10 days ago. Could you please help me to guide my wife in this matter.

Dear, having children is individual choice. As your wife has her own explanation for not having a second child, I think you should not force her to do so. Because forcing could lead to stress and related problems. You should try to win her trust. Slowly one day her mind should change. Taking psychological approach may help. Take care.

You must meet with a counselor for your depression. At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

Hi lybrate-user. Forgetting is a natural phenomenon of brain. In order to remember things for longer, you should try to read multiple times, write to check how much you remember after sometime, take frequent breaks (say after half hour reading, 5 minute break), regularly have water, take deep breaths to send more oxygen to your brain, don't starve yourself as our brain needs regular supply of glucose to function, have a good night's sleep before you go for your exam as during sleep, short term memory is converted to long term memory. Also, a balanced diet with fresh fruits and vegetables is important to feed your brain with required minerals, vitamins and other nutrients. Take care!

7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam. It is better not to gain weight as it causes many diseases . Stay lean and active

Dear Sachin, smoking and drinking addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.
